This continuing authoritative series deals with the chemistry, materials science, physics and technology of the rare earth elements in an integrated manner. Each chapter is a comprehensive, up-to-date, critical review of a particular segment of the field. The work offers the researcher and graduate student a complete and thorough coverage of this fascinating field.REVIEW:"Highly experienced authors have written each review usually at a level suitable for advanced postgraduate students and research workers from a variety of fields. With the great richness of information involving references to other review articles written from different points of view, the books are an important reference source and should be on the shelves of most libraries."-- Journal of Applied Crystallography
